The New York Rangers will open up their 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs with a quarterfinals meeting with the Washington Capitals, once again. Both teams are coming into this series hot, and it has the intentions of going the full seven games. The Rangers are expected to roll with the same lineup they closed the season out with, while the Caps will be rolling in some new lines.

This will only be Rick Nash's fifth playoff game throughout his entire career, and he's chomping at the bit to get going. This is why he came to New York, and he's ready to step up to the plate starting tonight. I can see him having a huge impact early on.
